Gilles Peterson Presents: Brownswood Bubblers Twelve pt. 2
Following up on Brownswood Bubblers Twelve pt. 1 which dropped earlier this year, Giles Peterson continues to curate sounds from all over the globe, dividing the first vinyl edition across two releases, the idea remains the same – shining a light on new and under-the-radar talent.
The roll-call of artists who’ve appeared on the Brownswood Bubblers series is impressive. Boasting alumni like Flying Lotus, Dam-Funk and Floating Points, the compilations have long championed the rising stars of underground music. The first edition since 2014, Brownswood Bubblers Twelve picks up where the last one left off – by looking to the acts set to make waves in 2017 and beyond.
With a whole three years having passed since the last Bubblers was released, too much exciting music has amassed to fit onto one release. For that reason, it’s been split into two parts – making room for an expansive spectrum of new sounds, this second part follows the first edition released in April (followed by vinyl in June).
The new compilation arrives as Peterson’s independent label Brownswood Recordings (from which the series takes its name) tails off celebrations for its 10th birthday. Plus, this part draws on two talents, in Broadstrokes and Skinny Pelembe, who’ve been nurtured through Peterson’s Future Bubblers programme – an Arts Council-funded scheme which is about helping new artists into the industry.
